It's finally happened — Jawbreaker reunited. Ahead on the emo/punk heroes' upcoming Riot Fest performance, the group did a warm-up show last night (August 3) at the Ivy Room in Albany, CA, marking their first live performance in 21 years.

The reunion set only consisted of seven songs, but some footage from the night has emerged online, including frontman Blake Schwarzenbach opening the show by reciting the John Keats poem "Ode on a Grecian Urn."

You can watch Jawbreaker rip through "The Boat Dreams from the Hill," "Condition Oakland" and "Chemistry" below, where you can also find the night's setlist, courtesy of Stereogum.

This all comes as Jawbreaker get set to play Chicago's Riot Fest on September 17.

As reported yesterday (August 3), Schwarzenbach opened up about the Jawbreaker reunion in a new interview, revealing many of the motivations were financial ones.
